Smiling, Caring and Learning Together on a Journey with God

Adding 2 numbers together

The children have come back from their half term break ready to learn. We have been busy adding 2 numbers together. The children have amazed me by using their fingers to work out the answer, and even some children have been adding their numbers together in their heads! Amazing! I have encouraged the children to count their fingers by using their nose! Look at the photo above!

“I have been counting using my fingers.” said Buddy.

“First we get our fingers up. We have to see if we have the right amount up. I count them with my nose.” said Marley.

We have remembered the big actions that we have been using for 'add' and 'equals'.

We have also learnt that if we add 2 numbers together, the answer will always be bigger.
